Yeah, a bunch of 3390 mod 3's. Those are getting a bit long in the tooth,
the mod 9's came out in what, '94? A fair number of people stuck with the
-3's for a while because of the VSE/VSAM 65535 track limit (error
IGD17051I comes to mind), which the -9's busted. It also impacted the MVS
product I was working on at the time that did direct channel controller
reads, but fixing that was relatively easy.

Yeah. A 360/75 is "retro".
Dave, if you manage to get all of this h/w in one place and need help
bringing it up, let me know. I'm no SE but I dealt with them often enough
to know where the long dangly bit of the atomic vector plotter goes.
Doing a SYSGEN is not rocket science but it's not point and click, either.
